Hey guys,

Alright straight to the point. Cyber Monday is in a month, and I think my motherboard is due for an upgrade:

I would just like some suggestions as to which mobo I should buy, taking compatibility and future upgradability into consideration.

This is my current build:
Mobo: Link above
CPU: Intel i5-2400 (with Hyper 212 plus)
GPU: Sapphire AMD Radeon HD 6870 1GB GDDR5
PSU: Corsair CX600 600 watt

Things to note:
-I don't plan on doing SLI or Crossfire, unless you guys recommend it?
-Eyefinity would be something I might be interested in later on.
-I'll probably buy more ram down the road (16GB?)
-GPU and CPU upgrades in a couple years.

I'd just like this mobo to last me a while into the future. I still consider myself a beginner, so all suggestions are appreciated :) 

Oh and I'd also like to keep it in the $80-$130 zone, but would go as high as $200 if it's really worth it (and will last).

Thanks everyone!

For that CPU, a high end mobo is a waste, I'd look for a CPU and mobo update, preferably INtel and a K model, so it will last you awhile
